2000 years of history is not wrong because you modernists cannot obey the Ten Commandments. The Christian Sabbath is kept by Christians!
"The theology of the Lord's Day as Christian Sabbath to which Eric Liddell subscribed held that the Sabbath principle was preserved though the day was changed from the seventh day of the week to the first day of the week. Most evangelical Christians held that the change of day was necessitated by three things: first commemoration of the resurrection of Christ on the first day of the week: second the coming of the Spirit at Pentecost on the first day of the week, seven weeks after the resurrection; and third New Testament Precedents. The term Lord's Day to describe the Christian Sabbath derives from Revelation 1:10. Naturally the arguement that the Sabbath principle continued rested on the principle that the Ten Commandments contained permanent spiritual and moral precepts which in their very nature could not be abrogated." (John Keddie)

God Himself took time out to carve this one out in stone as one of ten Commandments. If you cannot be bothered to keep this one then what of the others? Jesus kept all ten and did not make any null and void. Do you follow Him? Perhaps this is where you find yourself unprofitable in your service? Your witness is to be of God and His Scripture not man looking for a loophole out of difficult modern inconveniences.
"For the Son of man is Lord even of the sabbath day" Do you declare Jesus NOT Lord of the Sabbath?
"And he said unto them, The sabbath was made for man, and not man for the sabbath" Jesus teaching again! Here he declares that "The Sabbath was made for man" - (Not Israel) Who do you think made it? Did He waste His time on this? The Word of God is eternal.
